If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?
But with you is found forgiveness,
O God of Israel.
Psalm 130: 3-4


♦  Here I Am, Lord
♦  Come to the Water
♦  In the Breaking of the Bread

The rich suffer want and go hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no blessing.

Listen to I Cannot Come to the Banquet. Watch a contemporary take on Jesus’ parable.

HERE I AM, LORD was written and composed by Dan Schutte, based on Isaiah 6. One of Dan’s many contributions to contemporary American Catholic music, this song has been with us since 1981, yet has become such a favorite that many count it among our “traditional” hymns. It expresses a willingness to hear and answer God’s call, to live out the mission entrusted to us.
You can enjoy a little hymn karaoke. Here’s a jazz interpretation.

POPE FRANCIS: God’s Invitation is Universal

ADULTS: Prepare Me, Lord (A Prayer)
CHILDREN: Kidz Church: The Great Banquet
YOUTH: The Parable of the Wedding Banquet

We are sent out to do God’s work, singing We Are the Light of the World.
Our light may begin as a dim glimmer, but it grows to fill the world with the light of Christ. In Fiat Lux (Let There Be Light) by French Romantic composer Théodore Dubois, the “light” that we hear begins with soft string sounds and brightens gradually to display all the resources of the instrument.
